Alphas: God’s Eye or (Never) Close Your Eyes!

The world is ending… First, how about we all just take a breath and try to grasp the last few minutes of the season finale of Syfy’s Alphas. Did anyone else gasp with horror, freeze in place, and remain that way through the end credits and the first three minutes of the next show to follow? Well, I did. But I am also suffering from Alcatraz Syndrome, (for anyone who …Read the Rest

Alphas: Need To Know is the Breaking Point!

Everyone has a breaking point… Throughout much of season one, we explored the newness of Alphas.  We studied their connections to each other, their abilities, their coming together and becoming of what they are: a group of people who have made the choice to find more like them and protect them, help them, and occasionally tame them.  They clashed, sometimes painfully so, and latched on to each other as they …Read the Rest

Alphas – “Gods and Monsters” – “We Are the Borg…”

Hello Alphas fans! Red alert… “We are the Borg. Lower your shields and surrender your ships. We will add your biological and technological distinctiveness to our own. Your culture will adapt to service us. Resistance is futile.” -Star Trek: First Contact The Borg of Star Trek are considered to be one of the greatest enemies of the Federation. They are able to assimilate – essentially brainwash – organic life forms …Read the Rest

So see you in two weeks for my next Alphas review after my convention experiences! Regarding this week’s outstanding episode of Alphas written by Adam Levy, I hope all of you got your parental consent forms signed because it is time to go to rehab… “When push comes to shove” …Read the Rest

Alphas: “Alpha Dogs” – or “The First Rule of Fight Club…”

Hi Alphas! Remember the first rule of Fight Club… The name of the game is conflict in this week’s Alphas from Syfy. Over the course of an hour, we bear witness to possible mind control, two attempts to grow up, a whole lot of fighting, and the potential results of careful study. Who said being an Alpha was easy? Alphas Dogs: Following up on a dead Alpha, Doctor Lee Rosen …Read the Rest

Alphas! “Wake Up Call” or “Opacity”

Welcome back Alphas fans! The family is broken. After the breathtaking season finale that took place far too long ago, Syfy’s Alphas have returned almost in real time – eight months later – and the fallout from Doctor Lee Rosen’s, (David Strathairn), very public revelation continues to bleed through their actions, minds, and lives. We have returned to a family splintered, broken, and frightened. The visceral agony they all feel …Read the Rest

Alphas – “The Unusual Suspects” – The Ninth Circle of Hell and Occam’s Razor

Welcome back Alphas fans! Who is the traitor? This very question is at the heart of what is likely the darkest hour so far for Doctor Lee Rosen, (David Strathairn), and his Alphas. This week on Syfy’s Alphas, both the writing and the story take a twisted turn that pits the Alphas against one another, forcing well-hidden secrets to light, and having potentially dangerous repercussions on the relationships that have …Read the Rest

Alphas: “Blind Spot” – Fringe Elements

Welcome back Alphas fans! So as the season begins to draw to a close, Syfy’s Alphas is pulling some old tricks out of its still-new hat.  One of those said tricks is the ever-popular back-to-school theme.  Monday’s lesson began with the first sentence of the entire episode.  “Possible Red Flag prisoner in our office.” Now, truth be told, it does not matter just how high-tech your holding cell is.  It …Read the Rest

Alphas: “A Short Time In Paradise” – Judgment Calls Before Brent Spiner Arrives!

Welcome back Alphas fans! First off this week, why don’t we all pop a bottle of champagne (or a can of soda if you are reading this at work) and celebrate the fact that Syfy has decided Doctor Lee Rosen, (David Strathairn) and his team of Alphas deserve a second go-round! Hurray for a second season! Cue the confetti (that Gary Bell [Ryan Cartwright] will be picking out of his …Read the Rest

Alphas: “Catch and Release” – “Run, Idiots!”

Welcome back Alphas fans! “Run, idiots!” Well, at least she gave them the option. In a lot of films and TV shows, the villain of the scene is often crippled by their inability to comprehend the ticking clock, shoot in a straight line, or simply stand in one spot and gloat while the hero works their way free of any trap that has befallen them. Is it a natural instinct …Read the Rest
